Reference to the caption object. You can use this reference with the Text properties.

Note You first must create the caption before you use this property, or LabVIEW returns an error. LabVIEW creates the caption the first time you set the caption to visible.

This property is similar to the Visible Items»Caption option on the shortcut menu of front panel controls and the Caption Visible and Caption Text item on the Appearance page of the Properties dialog box.
